Stitched Cards by Maija Männistö

Saturday, October 3, 2020

 Hi friends, Maija Männistö here to share a trio of cards made with Go the Scenic Route and Paige's cut files! You know I was a card maker first before turning into scrapbooking! I loved making cards and lately I’ve been having fun diving back into my old passion. I used three different cut files and sized them to fit my 4x6 cards and stitched my heart out!
For this first card I used the Autumn with Stitching Holes cut file. I backed each letter with a different paper from the 2x2 Paper Pads and matched my thread to the paper. For embellishments I went with just a few flowers from the Floral Die Cuts and a heart from the Chipboard Stickers to complete the sentiment. I backed the piece with the stitching with a paper from the 6x8 Paper Pad before adhering it onto the card.
For the second card I went through the same process with the Wonderful with Stitching Holes cut file. I positioned the cut file on the right side of the card to fit the embellishments next to it. I chose few flowers from the Floral Die Cuts and then made the little banner with paper from the 6x8 Paper Pad and used letters from the Puffy Word Stickers.
For the last card I chose a more simple cut file to stitch, the Heart Stitching Holes. I used several different threads and stitched them in rainbow order. With the embellishments I wanted to go big so I chose the big flower from the Chipboard Stickers and added even more flowers from the Floral Die Cuts. For the sentiment I used a piece from the phrases pad in the 2x2 Paper Pads, cutting it a bit smaller and adding a little pennant on it. And to finish the card of I added the cute tiny Chipboard Sticker heart on top of it all.
Thank you so much for stopping by today, have a lovely and crafty day!
